SEAFOOD FARMING - GOOD FOR US, GOOD FOR OUR PLANET

Farmed seafood (aquaculture) is the harvesting of animals and plants in an aquatic environment. Seafood farming offers the most responsible solution to keep up with the growing global demand for safe and sustainable protein sources from our waters. Today, farmed seafood supplies about 50 percent of the world’s seafood for human consumption. By 2030, two-thirds of seafood will need to be farm-raised to meet current consumption. At High Liner Foods, quality, safety and responsibility are among our guiding principles. That’s why we’re leading an industry-wide effort to change consumer perception of farmed seafood, eliminate consumer concerns, and grow consumption.
